SPorts games for the Wii
Any good sports games for the Wii? Getting the Wii for X-mas and am trying to get a good idea of some sports games for it.

Are you a casual gamer or hardcore one?
Because sport games for the Wii sucks. The whole thing with the controller seems very gimmicky, and it's not too fun in the long run (for me personally).
Look at the reviews for instance.
NHL 2k9 (Wii) - IGN: NHL 2K9 <-- 6.8 Rating.
NHL 2k9 (Xbox 360) - IGN: NHL 2K9 Review <-- 8.0 Rating.
Then you gotta factor in online play (if you like that), and the Wii has the worst online features out there. You're stuck with friend codes for "safety reasons", and I believe most sports games on the Wii don't support online play for that reason alone.
Now don't get me wrong, I don't hate Nintendo and I'm always a big supporter of everything out there. Hell, I own a Wii as well.
I think sports games for the Wii is fine if you have a bunch of friends or family over to play with casually. Otherwise, I would just buy it for the stronger systems like the PS3 and Xbox 360 because of better all around gameplay and more online features.

The Wii is what we're getting because it's for the family. I have 2 little ones and we're going to get a lot of family oriented games. Since there's not a good hockey game for the Wii, I was hoping for something to take it's place. I play NHL08 at least 5 hours a week on PS2.
